Industrial Internet of Things - Solutions for Industrial Process Automation
Industrial Process Automation environments incorporate a significant number of mechanical and electromechanical devices, each of which provides functions critical to the end result expected from the process. Often these devices are in operation for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. The need for these devices to operate within certain tolerances is essential to the automated process with failure of a device often resulting in catastrophic failure of the process with loss of production for an unpredictable amount of time. The collection of data trends associated with tolerances specific to any device provides the necessary platform for data analytics that can predict the probable failure of a device before a catastrophic failure occurs. Similarly, the ability to monitor real time performance of applicable device tolerances and to alarm on out of tolerance conditions of devices provides a proactive maintenance environment that can improve the automated process by reducing or eliminating catastrophic events.
CCS Internet of Things as a Service
Addressing the need to deploy technology that can sense these “out of tolerance” conditions with the ability to monitor the devices in order to alarm on faulty conditions involves:
Capital expenditure and technical resources to:
Install and calibrate the sensor devices
Connect to the network,
Connect to a server associated with a backend program to gather and display the critical data in a usable format for your Operations personnel.
Additional capabilities beyond sense and alarm functions requires the purchase or development of additional software to further enhance the use of the gathered data and or the placement of data into the appropriate database for trend analysis is another costly expense.
CCS can put this critical information at your fingertips. in the correct format, providing the necessary data, reporting, alarms, and alerts via desktop browser interface, or Android/iPhone app (included). Optional capabilities are available including :
Write Alarms and Alerts to selective PLCs for near real time action.
Data transfer to your SCADA/HMI Historian database
Sensor specific data information directly accessible from your SCADA/HMI
The CCS IIoTaaS program incorporates all the sensors, cellular gateways, cellular fees, installation at your facility as well as the reporting and notification software applications that include the following capabilities:
Conditional Custom Alerts
Notify Contact List
Rules and Thresholds
Corrective Action Reports
Integration with other Services
Sensor Location Map
Our IIoTaaS program puts all this in your hands for the cost of an initial setup fee and then a small monthly fee for each sensor and gateway. The fees include all the hardware and software, monthly cellular fees, and all installation costs to deploy, configure, train and support your onsite personnel.
Introductory deployment package
Our introductory deployment package includes a powerful vibration and temperature sensor with a magnetic base for an easy deployment on almost any portion of the industrial process subject to vibration and/or heat tolerances that can affect performance and possibly contribute to process failure or interruption.
CCS IIoTaaS can give you access to critical data that you could never access before. Our totally wireless solution make deployment at your facility a snap. You can have sensor(s) installed and feeding data to you and your staff in less than a day.
